Celebrating our little family and the new baby boy soon to arrive!

San Diego Digs

Indian{a} Summer

The whole Moody clan returned to Indiana for the Moody Family Reunion. Lots of fun memories in Brown County! We also met up with the Mankas who happened to be in Indiana the same week. Aunt Rebekah, Uncle David, Aunt Tammy, Great Grandma Moody and Great Uncle Tim all met Silas for the first time.

CBC Youth Group

Our teen group began October 2009. It's been great to see the teens learn about God and have fun together!

Parade of Veterans

Honoring veterans as they passed by at the Phoenix Veterans Day parade was a great way for us to show our appreciation for those who have bought our freedom.

Corn Maze

Even though it was about 90 degrees out, there's nothing that says autumn like a bonfire and corn maze!

Luke AFB Firestation

Fire Chief Yates from our church gave us a tour of his fire station on Luke Air Force Base.

Peoria Condo

This is our new little place...for a while anyway!

Charis' Apartment
